Here the code after

is it really this hard

CodeChallenge.java
JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("jsonShows");


for (int i = 0; i < data.length(); i++){
     JSONObject jsonShows = data.getJSONObject(i);
     Show show = new Show();
     show.setTitle(jsonShows.getJSONObject("title"));
     show.setSeason(jsonShows.getJSONObject("season"));
     show.setEpisode(jsonShows.getJSONObject("episode"));
       Log.i(TAG, "CodeChallenge:");
}
data.json
{
    "name":"Netflix Playlist",
    "shows":[
        {
            "title":"Doctor Who",
            "season":8,
            "episode":3
        },
        {
            "title":"Arrow",
            "season":1,
            "episode":10
        },

Hey Tremayne,

No, it's a bit simpler. You just have to 'Log' the title, you don't have to insert into an Class.

JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("shows");    // The key is 'shows' not 'jsonShows'

for (int i=0; i<jsonShows.length(); i++) {
  JSONObject showsObject = jsonShows.getJSONObject(i);
  Log.i("CodeChallenge", showsObject.getString("title"));
}
